Regular Tale Peddler readers will know I love op-shops (thrift shops to overseas readers) and EBay. Here are a few of the fab and lovely things I've purchased recently.
1/ Mark and Mandy book. Daisy adores these sweet stories of two cousins and their adventures. This one is in new condition and so it will be a surprise in her Christmas stocking gifts. (I hope she takes the hint in the title!)
2/Cath Kidston bag. I always love CK's use of colour and this pink and green bag 'pops' nicely.
3/Toile curtains. I picked these up for our tiny loungeroom. I love toile and this has charming scenes of village life.
4/Kate Bush book. This classic came from a French EBay seller. It's another from the '80s. I used to borrow this book from the school library and it brought back many pleasant memories as I perused the photos of the amazing Kate.
5/Poodle shower curtain. A vintage '50s shower curtain featuring French poodles against a background of Eiffel Towers and pink macrons and baguettes was probably my most extravagant purchase, as I already have several white shower curtains. But I couldn't resist those poodles!
It is fortunate my writing, Blogging and playing with Daisy takes up all my time or I would blow our budget out with op-shops and EBay.
Is there anything you can't resist when shopping? Do tell!
I wish you a relaxing weekend filled with abundance in all areas of your life. I've just received my two US subscription magazines (Cookie and Romantic Country) and so I have plenty of light reading.
Keep creative and stay chirpy. xx
